New Samsung Windows Phone device discovered

With Nokia throwing around game changing Windows Phone Devices like the Lumia 925 and 1020, it may be easy to forget that other Windows Phone OEMS like Huawei, HTC and Samsung have devices and ecosystems of their own. After releasing the critically acclaimed but poorly marketed Ativ S and it's variant, the Ativ S Neo, Samsung seems poised to reveal another device this fall. 

The device code-named  SGH-I187 is not connected to any currently existing Samsung models and is likely to be a new product in its own right.

Its specs include:

  • Windows Phone 8.0
  • 720p HD screen resolution
  • Adreno 305 GPU
  • Dual Core CPU

Specs according to GFXBench.

While it is not unlikely that this device could be unveiled on September 4th at IFA, it doesn't appear to launch with GDR3 hardware improvements and may in fact be a mid range Ativ Odyssey successor rather than the new Ativ S2 which should ideally be a variant of the Galaxy S4. Otherwise, this device is set to compete-albeit disastrously-with the rumored HTC and Nokia flagships coming later this year with vastly superior specs.

If this is a mid-range odyssey successor then why will it "...compete-albeit disastrously-with the rumored HTC and Nokia flagships coming later this year with vastly superior specs."?

Seeing how much success Nokia is having with their mid and low range Lumias it makes sense to target that spot with pre-GDR3 devices at lower prices. They'll have 1, maybe 2 higher end GDR3 phones as well I'm sure, probably that Ativ S2, should be a given, but I expect a Note type 5.5" device with WP as well from them.

I don't think I'll have another Samsung phone after the Note 2 I had died after logic board frying. I'm really happy with the Lumia 920 I had till recently, I'm now enjoying Nokia Lumia 925. So long as Nokia keep going in the way they have, I'll def stick with Nokia from now on.

The Neowin time machine is currently unavailable, if it was working we'd make a quick jump into the future and get you a pic. Maybe toss a review or two in there

I mean anyone can just sit behind their computer and cook up numbers claiming to be spotted device. Call me when you have an image or something from a source I can trust.

The story is interesting on its own. If no picture is available what is the point of putting one up?

What part is it interesting, it's the same specs as last years Ativ (if you can believe this) coupled with that , they don't have no image to. I have seen far too many of these "leaks" to know something doesn't feel right.
